Almost Home Animal Rescue has taken in more kittens. These four were left alone when their mother was killed. They were sick and infected. HPAN paid for their antibiotics, ear medication, dewormer, etc. for $70.47.
Little Kenneth was pulled from a shelter with a bad case of heartworms. The rescue started his treatment, and he was doing well before he took a turn for the worst. He was in vet care when his little body began to shut down. There was nothing more to do for him. The rescue ran up a large vet bill and did not get an adoption fee for him, so we helped ease their burden by contributing to the bill so they are free to help another animal. Kenneth mattered. Let the message be that heartworms are started by one mosquito infected with the virus. Monthly prevention is easy and inexpensive. No animal should suffer like this little one did.
Bandit’s mom had to surrender him to the shelter due to health reasons. He was sick as well and needed vet care. That’s when Roane County Paws stepped in and asked us to help. We were able to pay for Bandit’s exam, x-rays, and medication.
Pearl was found on the side of the road by a good Samaritan. He contacted For the Love of Paws who took her to their vet. Pearl had a leg injury, an eye infection, a skin infection, and terrible teeth. It didn’t take much to set little Pearl on a path to wellness. We’re so glad we could help.
Bongo was hit by a car and taken to the Roane County Animal Shelter. He had internal injuries and broken bones, yet he survived and is healing after surgery. We were honored to play a role in Bongo’s survival.
Life got better for Indie, Keeley, Paisley, Pepper, Pippa, Scout, and Trixie when Pet Path stepped in. Keeley was on a shelter euthanasia list with a bad case of heartworms. Indie, Scout, Pepper, and Trixie were surrendered unvetted. Paisley and Pippa were on death row at a Tennessee shelter. HPAN covered all the needed vetting at a low-cost clinic for these babies.
Hans Solo and Notorious B.I.G. were pulled from high-kill shelters by Fighting for the Bullys Pit Bull Rescue. They both had heartworms, which is a second death sentence. We paid for these boys to get well by sponsoring their treatment.
Red was pulled from a local shelter — came in as a stray — and the original story was he was dragged by car. However, the physical findings don’t support that. It has been determined that he has chemical burns on thirty percent of his back. He is at the vet in the Isolation Ward at the moment because of the kennel cough, and he is not well enough for vaccines. We are sponsoring Red’s treatment and boarding.
Spots was a stray who got lucky and landed into the care of Almost Home Animal Rescue. They asked us to sponsor Spots’ combo testing, vaccines, and spay surgery. No more litters with this little one!
These gorgeous kitties were found on someone’s porch in an area highly populated with coyotes. The homeowner contacted the Humane Society of East Tennessee, and the kitties immediately found themselves in a better position, especially since Midnight had a severe compound fracture in one of her legs. The sisters were taken to the vet where they received vaccines, testing, spay surgeries, and leg repair.
